From AFSCME: Your Student Debt

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

A college education is one of the most important investments we can make. Unfortunately, for many it comes with massive student loan debt. And as more students than ever rely on loans to pay for college, they need help.

Sidney Kesten, RIP

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Sidney Kesten, former Executive Board Member/Delegate/Sup II, Manhattan Field Office.  "We are mourning his passing and celebrating his contribution to this union and membership," said Union President Anthony Wells. 

Arrangements are as follows: 

General Membership Meeting

Please join the Union tonight, Wednesday, November 19 at the General Membership Meeting/Delegates Assembly, which will take place at the School of the Future at 127 E. 22nd. St., New York, NY 10010.

Deal for HCIs in HHC

The Union met with HHC management to resolve the issue of the establishment of the HCI list. 

The Union and the agency had met in August to discuss the HHC proposal for a selective certification list for HCIs. The agency wanted a special list for HCIs with Medicaid application certification, something that the Union objected to. 

Community Centers Closed Since Sandy

The Daily News recently ran this story on two NYCHA community centers closed since Hurricane Sandy. 

RIP, John Doar

The Union sends its collective condolences to the family of former HRA Commissioner Robert Doar, whose father, John Doar, died age 92 Nov. 11. 

Doar was a heroic fighter for civil rights. We honor his life and commitment to justice.
